We love to present music that is not only wonderful to listen to but illuminates a particular historical and cultural context, and this hour of Beat Latino presents music from a variety of intersections of the Celtic world and the Latin world. This special for the Day of San Patricio includes selections of the Celtic-origin bagpipe music of northeastern Spain and Portugal, Tex-Mex/Irish folk-music, salsa from Scotland and a salsa-tinged and most danceable version of “Danny Boy” by Ruben Blades from Panama!
